520    "Experimentation with the speech of characters has been 
       hailed by Gerard Genette as "one of the main paths of 
       emancipation in the modern novel." Dialogue as a stylistic
       and narrative device is a key feature in the development 
       of the novel as a genre, yet it is also a phenomenon 
       little acknowledged or explored in the critical 
       literature. Fictional Dialogue demonstrates the richness 
       and versatility of dialogue as a narrative technique in 
       twentieth- and twenty-first-century novels by focusing on 
       extended extracts and sequences of utterances. It also 
       examines how different versions of dialogue may help to 
       normalize or idealize certain patterns and practices, 
       thereby excluding alternative possibilities or eliding 
       "unevenness" and differences. Bronwen Thomas, by bringing 
       together theories and models of fictional dialogue from a 
       wide range of disciplines and intellectual traditions, 
       shows how the subject raises profound questions concerning
       our understanding of narrative and human communication. 
       The first study of its kind to combine literary and 
       narratological analysis with reference to linguistic terms
       and models, Bakhtinian theory, cultural history, media 
       theory, and cognitive approaches, this book is also the 
       first to focus in depth on the dialogue novel in the 
       twentieth and twenty-first centuries and to bring together
       examples of dialogue from literature, popular fiction, and
       nonlinear narratives. Beyond critiquing existing methods 
       of analysis, it outlines a promising new method for 
       analyzing fictional dialogue."--|cProvided by publisher.
